    Mystery Quilt - Need Your Help

    My sister-in-law's grandmother quilted the top of this quilt but she has no idea of the pattern. It was created more than 70 years ago. Would any of you know the name of the pattern? I am in the process of repairing it very delicately so as to retain its historic qualities. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated.

    I don't know the pattern, but it's really beautiful and I think it's so great that you are restoring it.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    What a beautiful quilt! Don't know the name of the pattern, so will have to go looking in my various block books.

    I can see a couple of designs in the piecing that make it very interesting. Would love to know the name as well.

    I'd love to know the name of this, too. It's very pretty ... one I think I'd like to make. Hopefully someone will know what it is!

    I believe it is called Endless Chain. This looks like the block: endless-chain.jpg

    It looks just like the one on the cover of Fons & Porter's book "Scrap Quilts". I JUST returned my borrowed copy to the library, otherwise I could tell you what they called it.
